People must be able to get into and around town and city centres with a degree of ease to harness their positive effects. It’s important to examine the existing transport infrastructure in our towns and cities and explore how they can benefit from additional investment, particularly in terms of accessibility and environmental sustainability.
We’re calling for four major changes in public transport policy to improve town centres and high streets for residents, visitors and workers:
1. A de-stigmatisation of bus travel that challenges the car as a primary mode of transport, particularly in smaller towns and cities.

3. A focus on design to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists.
4. Transport infrastructure designed with multiple uses to give it a more fluid role.
